My favourite chess problem
Many years ago, searching for the Internet over chess problem, I bumped into a very interesting piece.
Find it on the bottom as a FEN row, clicking on it the board will also appear.
The task is: white mates in one!
Can't be too hard, I thought, but scrolling over the possibilities the solution just didn't come up.
I check everything once more, then again, and again, and once I found another way that was hidden for me before. The solution also hid there. It became my favourite chess problem then, but of course, it's true, there are many many beautiful problems out there.
This was the first problem I submitted to the server. Some players can solve it, some don't. Some believe there is no valid solution.
So, check this problem if you want. And enjoy.
The following list contains all the stories gathered from here and there.
Click on any of them.
It's easy to find opponents here by pairing. Players can request pairing for one game, or that the server should search for opponents until she plays less than the given number of games.
This last one is the automatic pairing.
By default those players will be paired, who's ratings are closer than 100 elo points, and has never, or more than 90 days ago they played.
These parameters can be customizes, if, for example, somebody wants rather stronger or weaker players.
